Latest snow improves area trail conditions

Posted

REGIONAL— Three to four inches of fresh snow that fell this past weekend has left area trails in the best shape so far this season. Whether you’re interested in skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling, the trails are in generally good shape around the area.
The Taconite snowmobile trail is now listed in good condition from Grand Rapids to Ely, while the Arrowhead Trail is listed in fair condition, with a few troublespots around high ledge rock outcrops near Ban Lake. The DNR reports a 1 to 4-inch packed base on both of the trails, which form the backbone of the trails system in the region.
Cross-country ski trails in Tower were freshly groomed after last weekend’s snowfall and are now in very good condition. Trails at Bear Head were mostly groomed and were listed in fair condition ahead of last weekend’s snow.
Most locations in northern St. Louis County currently have anywhere from 10-14 inches on the ground. Little fresh snow is forecast over the next several days as very cold temperatures are expected to dominate the weather picture over the weekend and through at least the middle of next week.
